The world’s first fully managed Video Surveillance as a Service (VSaaS) system – Ocucon – has announced that as part of an Original Equipment Manufacturing (OEM) agreement with Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), Ocucon will now offer its customers the world’s most secure industry-standard servers.
Breaking new ground in surveillance technology, Ocucon delivers a powerful, cloud-based storage and retrieval platform, combining intelligent data analytics with the facility to store, analyse and retrieve unlimited amounts of HD video surveillance footage from within the Ocucon portal.
Ocucon will incorporate the latest HPE ProLiant Gen10 servers into its own solutions to use on client sites, including Ocucon branded workstations and servers.
Ocucon Co-Founder, Gary Trotter commented: “From the outset, Ocucon has collaborated with leading technology partners in the UK to deliver a first of its kind cloud-based software system that processes, transmits and stores unlimited amounts of CCTV footage. We are delighted to be able to announce this partnership with HPE which will enable us to deliver market leading equipment to our customers.”
Phillip Cutrone, vice president and general manager, Worldwide OEM, Data Center Infrastructure Group at HPE commented: “Ocucon is bringing enhanced capabilities to the video surveillance market through its hybrid IT platform, enabling customers to unlock more value from video footage and improve fraud prevention. We look forward to collaborating with Ocucon to combine our servers with their intelligent software, providing significant benefits to companies of all sizes as they adopt more ‘as a service’ solutions for their businesses.”
Launched in October 2017, Ocucon is set to revolutionise the ability of businesses to defend against fraudulent cases of slips, trips and falls – currently estimated to cost the UK economy alone more than £800 million a year – by removing physical limitations on the amount of surveillance footage an organisation can save. Ocucon is expected to be of interest to any organisation capturing significant amounts of CCTV data, and since its launch has seen significant interest from both UK and US supermarkets and retail chains.
The North East-based firm also recently launched Ocucon Pixelate. Developed in partnership with Google, the new product harnesses the power of AI and machine learning to deliver an intelligent and cost-effective video redaction tool that can be used with all forms of camera footage.
